We used toilet paper rolls for these chicks, but rolls from paper towel or similar could have been cut in half to use instead. We covered the cardboard rolls in yellow paper so that the paper extended beyond the ends of the roll. We cut these sections just to the edge of the cardboard to create a fringe of paper at the ends of the roll. Then we folded the excess paper fringe into the centre of the roll to make a neatly covered cardboard roll.
I cut out some feet shapes from orange cardboard and the kids added them to the base of their rolls. Each foot had a little tab of cardboard folded up and glued on the inside of the roll. L and A added googly eyes and the beaks were made from a small piece of pipe cleaner folded into a little triangle and glued onto the roll.
L cut down some yellow feathers to the size she wanted, and placed them on the sides of her chick for wings. She also glued a small piece of feather to the back as a tail. A cut up feathers to use on her chick too. She added wings, a tail, and some hair to her chick. Both chicks are really cute.
